I am not sure how e-shirt does it but most of those online shirt stores use direct to garment printing. The quality of direct to garment printing is pretty crappy if you ask me. It doesn't hold up well. So if you do attract people to your store and they buy one shirt, which is difficult to do....they may never buy another shirt. You are going to want repeat business because it is very tough to get someone to make that initial buy from you. Repeat business is huge and if your quality is crappy, no one will ever buy from you again. Just something to think about.

You also have to remember that not all customers will think that direct garment printing is crappy (many will prefer it over heat press).

I don't think any of the online t-shirt fulfillment companies that I've tried have "crappy" printing.
They are not "crappy"...just not the quality of silk screened shirts in my opinion. I think direct to garment printing isn't quite up to par with silk screened shirts but it is less expensive. I think the next couple of years, direct to garment printing might overtake silk screened quality. Until then...I am sticking to my silk screen. That is just my opinion, some people prefer direct to garment printing.

Sorry, I was quick to comment. Crappy wasn't the appropriate term. The printing methods are a personal preference. Mine just happens to be Screen Printing.

Rodney, it looks like you live on this forum. You have at least one comment in pretty much every post on this site. Way to be on top of things, I'm impressed. Keep it up.
